With Spring around the corner, have you got protection in place for your Bowling Green Ditches?

Want to make sure your green is in great playing condition as your Club re-opens and the restrictions are lifted

Are you ready for the new season? One area of the greens which is under constant wear and tear from the unpredictable and varied British environment is the ditches and their liners. 

Ditch liners play an important role in both protecting the woods and jacks from surface damage and stopping them moving from where they drop into the gutter.  

Fortunately there are several types of ditch liner available from simple rubber chippings to imported mats.  Unfortunately, some liners can deteriorate rapidly and fail in their main functions, which also leaves the green looking untidy.

The Clifton Rubber ditch liner has soft rubber spikes which protect the woods and jacks which drop into the ditch and stop them from moving, meeting the criteria and regulations set by the bowls governing bodies.  The Ditch Liners are manufactured at Clifton Rubber’s factory in the UK from a high quality rubber material which is extremely durable in the outside environment. 

The liners come in one metre sections and the width is suitable for standard ditches of 200mm – 300mm in width.  The product is maintenance free and very cost effective compared to similar products.

Clubs who have installed this innovative product are delighted with the finished product and the ditch liners’ longevity.

Innovative Design

Clifton Rubber have worked in conjunction with their local Bowls club to design and develop an innovative rubber ditch liner system, which is now installed in hundreds of Clubs worldwide.

““We looked at cheaper alternatives but felt that it was worth buying a quality product that would have a longer life span. These liners have been the perfect solution and are extremely low maintenance.””
